In case some of you have never seen one, this is a rare M59 target rifle. They only made 9,000 M59’s total in one year. Not sure how many were the target type. The pictured rifle is not mine. I think it is JWA’s, mine is not as nice.   Big LarryJWAs-M59.jpgImage Enlarger

Yes, that one is mine.  I know of at least 6 in that configuration;

1 in the original Winchester factory collection

1 in the NRA museum

1 in the Big Larry collection

And my 3 (just bought another one last month).

All with factory 1 1/4″ swivels and Lyman 42 rear sight.

Not trying to corner the market but it seems as if they seek me out and then beg me to buy them.  I am just trying to be accommodating.

I had to pay $120 for the one last month I found in Missouri, how could I not buy it?  I feel bad I didn’t even dicker with the pawn shop, just whipped my wallet out as fast as I could……probably could have got it for $50.

He already has a corner on the market. I consider myself very lucky to call this gentleman my friend. He has a real sharp eye.   Big Larry
